Procurement Options Analysis

Building Canada Fund applications which, through the P3 screening process, have been found to demonstrate P3 potential, will be required to undertake a Procurement Options Analysis (POA) with the support of PPP Canada and Infrastructure Canada.

PPP Canada will share associated costs with applicants who qualify for a POA.

What is a Procurement Options Analysis?

A POA supports the choice of delivery approach. It describes, examines and compares the traditional procurement delivery model, a P3 delivery model, and other alternatives for the delivery of infrastructure, to determine which option offers best Value for Money. 

A POA includes the following sections:

  • A shortlisting of procurement options;
  • A qualitative analysis;
  • A quantitative analysis; and 
  • An integrated recommendation.

An optimal delivery option is selected by subjecting the shortlisted procurement options to qualitative and quantitative examinations and determining which option best meets the identified criteria.
